Nepenthes sibuyanensis x lowii Potted
Ventricosa x lowii has been a favorite hybrid of ours for over 30 years; much easier to grow but with the same fantastic upper pitchers of Nepenthes lowii. Nepenthes sibuyanensis is basically a supersized ventricosa so we’re expecting these to be even better! Their tubby little pitchers are dark red, almost black at a small size. These are from assorted clones from BE-4504.
